Wolves At The Gate - Lights & Fire (Official Music Video)

How awesome is Wolves At The Gate? I mean seriously, this band has released 4 full lengths (with 1 on the way), 3 EPs, and 1 Covers Ep plus stuff they may have done independently, all the while slipping under most people’s radars. I absolutely love this band and think their powerful music is worthy of repeat listens as well as all the fanfare coming their way. Make sure to watch the music video for the incredible new song “Lights & Fire” below and check out the new album “Eulogies” out March 11th on Solid State Records.… Continued →

Meadows Sign With Facedown Records

Meadows, a band I’ve written about a bit in the past as well as other writers here, will be coming out with brand new music. They have signed a deal with Facedown Records and have dropped their new single “The Depths”. I encourage you to go check out both of their last 2 releases and give them a listen. It’s great ambient, post-metal/post-hardcore stuff similar in scope to Hands, Between the Buried and Me, Thrice, A Hope for Home, Life In Your Way, Underoath, Architects, etc.… Continued →

Everything In Slow Motion Drops 2nd Song, "Choke"

Shane, why must you create such fresh, relevant, heart wrenching new music? This song literally grabs you by the throat and well, releases a flood of all the best emotions. In reality, this song does anything but “Choke” you but it does grip you with a collection of notes and music performed by a talented ensemble of well seasoned musicians. I have always loved Shane’s voice and work in music since the very first few “Demos” he sent me in his first band – Hands, all those years ago.… Continued →

REVIEW : TIMŌRĀTUS/Symphony of Heaven/Bismoth - Body of Christ: 3-Way split

SPOILER ALERT: This is a fantastic release! 3 different bands playing 3 different styles (sub-sub-subgenres) of black metal. Each band contributes 2 songs, and while it would be logical to assume that 6 songs equals an EP, this album clocks in at 37 minutes, so I’m gonna call that a full-length. First up are TIMŌRĀTUS (from Louisville, KY), who continue to surprise and amaze me! Every album they do is in a different style, and amazingly they somehow manage to do them all well.… Continued →

Death Therapy Drops Two Insane New Singles

Death Therapy are gearing up to release their follow up (2nd) full length on Solid State Records titled “Voices” which will drop on April 12th. Check out the insanely good new single “Feels Like Fiction” (feat Garrett Russell of Silent Planet) and the song “My Defiance”, below. These two songs showcase a group on the verge of explosive success through their prog leaning metal whatever-you want-to-call-it, music. This is a definite leap over the previous full length (which is tough to do because it was nearly perfect) and further proof of Jason Wisdom’s (and band-mates) songwriting prowess.… Continued →

TETELESTAI - CRVSH SVTVN - Ep Available Now

There may be a few bands under a variation of this name but the heavy music duo known as TETELESTAI have been going at it for nearly 10 years and are here to present their nail biting, ear crushing new ep. Get pummeled and crushed by the biting sound of this band. The duo brings about heavy music in a unique manner and presents an ep set worth of songs without sacrificing the heaviness. This is a refreshing take on the genre and something I am sure the majority of IVM heavy music fans will instantly appreciate.… Continued →

REVIEW : The Drowned God - I'll Always Be the Same

I’ll Always Be the Same is a tiring listen. For an album that focuses on negative thoughts and emotions, the lyrics really accentuate the music. Human psychology is paradoxical in the sense that even when emotions and thoughts seem to repeat themselves, they can never actually be the same qualitatively, since they occur at different points in time. The music of The Drowned God is an effigy of consciousness, for the song structures are entirely unpredictable, even when there is repetition at either the lyrical or musical level.… Continued →

REVIEW : TIMŌRĀTUS - Reverentia

While this band hails from Louisville, I would have sworn they were from eastern Europe somewhere.  That’s a good thing.  Reverentia is yet another quality post-metal release I’ve come across recently.  But whereas the mysterious band God revel in djent rhythms and instrumental anthems to connect the listener to God, TIMŌRĀTUS takes a different approach altogether.  Each album is written and recorded in a different style.  I’ve sampled some of the other albums and there’s black metal, thrash, doom and experimental hybrids.… Continued →

REVIEW : God - God II: Jesus Christ - The Origin, The Life, Death & Resurrection Of Jesus Christ

This mysterious band has been making music since 2016.  Their website states, “GOD will challenge you to consider your life, death through the power of music.”  While I am in contact with the band members, repeated requests for information regarding the member(s) have been unsuccessful—even to the point of denying my request to know which country the band is from. This is the second album from the band, and there are two more planned—each one with a conceptual theme. … Continued →

Hands - The Sounds of Earth (Playlist)

The band Hands first formed back in 2007, releasing a couple of “Demos” of which I was a strong supporter of. Their songs even appeared on a few of our early digital compilations. I followed Shane and his band’s work closely over the years following their formation from their first independent release, “The Everlasting Ep” (2008), to the incredible full length debut “The Sounds of Earth” (Oort Records/2009) to “Creator” (Facedown Records), “Give Me Rest” (Facedown Records” and finally after a much deserved break, their comeback single “New Heaven / New Earth” (2017/Facedown Records).… Continued →
